Very first concept

QuoteHere a frame where I designed how the bombs falling over the engineers, inspired by Busby Berkeley choreography.

To design the way the bombs fell, also in this case inspired by Busby Berkeley choreography, blending it with a dna helix shape.

QuoteAs far as the explosion was concerned, I resumed the concept of atomic bomb, which did not explode on the ground, but at 600 meters above it. Regarding the shape of the explosion, I was inspired by an 18th century illustration of the artist and biologist Ernst Haekel.


Scientific Illustration by Ernst Haekel.


The kaleidoscopic shape of falling bombs, is inspired by the phenomenon of Chladni plate.



QuoteTo design the black goo sloping down, I was inspired by the ink's behavior in water. Evolutions and movements had to look like under the influence of various magnetic fields, as iron dust under the influence of powerful magnetic fields that create shapes as in the picture below. When I showed this concept to Ridley Scott, he called it dearly and rightly, a tree of death in the atmosphere of a Victorian painting.


Iron dust under the influence of powerful magnetic fields.

QuoteAt some point, during our conversation, Sir Ridley Scott tells me: "Alessandro, I do not want Metachaos, but I want it to be inspired by Metachaos."

Of this scene, that has to be the best concept art ever, I mean I remember one from Khang Le, but this one is much more fractal and surreal. I loved it!  :o
